SFDATA Partners with Virtual Bridges to Deliver Flexible, Scalable VDI
AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Bridges, Inc. and SFDATA today announced a partnership in which
SFDATA will use Virtual Bridges VERDE VDI Gen2 for the company's
on-premises and cloud-hosted virtual desktop offerings. Featuring
online, offline and branch VDI, VERDE
is proven to reduce the costs and complexity of managing desktops, while
minimizing security concerns and business risk.
As the industry's only purpose-built
VDI solution, VERDE allows users to access both Windows and Linux
desktops from any location or device - including tablets, netbooks,
laptops and thin clients. Organizations can manage desktops centrally, reducing
the costs and challenges associated with provisioning, updating and
securing highly distributed PC environments.
"With desktop virtualization, there is not a one size fits all strategy.
While first generation solutions were originally designed for server
virtualization, VDI Gen2 is specifically designed for the desktop,
delivering lower licensing costs, lower hardware acquisition costs, and
reduced IT management labor over VDI Gen1 technologies," said J. age
Hutchens, Founder & CEO of SFDATA. "Partnering with Virtual Bridges, our
customers now have access to desktop virtualization offerings that
deliver unprecedented scalability, offline capabilities, and deployment
flexibility to meet their needs."
With the deadline for Windows XP retirement approaching, desktop
virtualization is quickly emerging as a priority for organizations that
wish to keep their desktop budget inline. Instead of having to re-image
all desktops and laptops, VERDE allows SFDATA customers to create, test
and deploy a virtual desktop with Windows 7 in minutes. Additionally,
customers can easily scale their environment to meet fluctuating
business demands, without sacrificing security or performance,
regardless of whether the solution is deployed on a customer's own
infrastructure or hosted in the cloud by SFDATA.
"Along with workforce mobility, business continuity and overall desktop
transformation, Windows 7 migrations are one of the fastest growing use
cases for VDI," said Jim Curtin, CEO of Virtual Bridges. "Together with
SFDATA we can help organizations drive efficiencies, reduce costs,
increase scalability and improve performance."
Among its many benefits, VERDE offers unified monitoring and management
of desktops across onsite and offsite environments; high-definition
multimedia support; automatic bi-directional sync for true mobility; and
advanced cloud branch capabilities including disaster recovery and
